My second show, but the first for which I was familiar with the music - so in some ways, my first show. Funny, I remember it being a tad damp, but the rain didn't seem like any impediment at all to this native Portlander, nor to our crew. I don't have a high personal show count - saw this band only something like 30 times. But every damn time it was like being in the presence of Titans. No matter what I had or hadn't eaten, the feeling was there - an excitement and thrill mixed with the greatest deep respect and awe for these giants of music and culture. And this is the day it started for me. Liked Brent immediately. Anyway, ya, this show sounds kinda average compared to other shows, but pretty good for a lazy Saturday afternoon. But there's some good stuff too: LLR has a great JG solo, (marred by low lead gtr. mix level - kinda problematic much of the show. Was this recorded from Weir's side of the field?); Miracle rocks righteously as does Good Lovin'. Standing on tiptoes for the big solo in Estimated. Thanks.

The lineup looked so good:
David Bromberg
McGuinn, Clark & Hillman
The Grateful Dead

The elements were not very cooperative; it was a wet day. The security guards would not let me take in our tent poles so I had to leave and then later hand them through the fence, but it cost me an extra ticket to get back in. We set up our North Face Oval Intention dome tent and had the opportunity to take turns getting out of the rain.
Lowell George had died the night before and Bobby starts the second set with dedicating this next song (I Need a Miracle) to Lowell; Weir's comment didn't feel right as he said "He was good while he lasted."
This show was just too mundane and the day was misrable so we just could not get inspired.
The next day in Seattle was much better.

This is a good Front of board. It was a good show that day with David Bromberg opening the day and Mcginn, Clark, and Hillman playing before the Dead. It was an overcast day with sun finally breaking though the clouds during the Other One.
